Maneater Bracketology: Tough week drops Tigers to a No. 8 seed

March Madness has arrived, and there was no shortage of exciting games last week. Missouri got the taste of March with a close win against Iowa State, where Zaire "Big Shot" Taylor hitting a running buzzer-beater to down the Cyclones.

But a game that close against a team that bad, paired with a complete disaster of a game against Kansas, I had no choice but to drop the Tigers a line to a No. 8 seed.

Dsteiner: I think Baylor deserves a better seed. I hear that the Big 12 is #1 RPI conference and the Big Ten is #5. It looks like the seeds don't indicate this.
